    So who's going to hack their way into the backyard chicken niche? Anyone already involved?

    Anything missing from the report you'd like to see added?

  2. Hieu Nguyen says:

    Very detailed report, Stuart! Like your way to analyze this niche, enough data to build a authority site 😀

  3. NicheHacks says:

    Btw if anyone has any niches they'd like me to research and publish feel free to suggest them though I predict not many people will post it publicly for obvious reasons. 🙂

  4. Sunday says:

    Interesting piece! Blackyard chickens have been demystified as profitable niche. This report is comprehensive enough and should inspire the building of a niche site. Using the term "niche hack" could raise eyebrows 🙂

    This comment was shared in kingged.com - the content syndication and social bookmarking website where this post was found and "kingged".

    • NicheHacks says:

      Ha ha yes 'niche hack' in reference to chickens could scare some people. Glad you liked it and commented Sunday, thanks!

  5. NHR,

    What a post!

    This report would be popular here in Thailand. So many free range chickens around 😉

    Thanks for the share.

    • NicheHacks says:

      Hey Ryan, glad you like it! Yes plenty of backyard chickens here, a house in my soi has a few roaming around every now and then. Strangely the many cats around don't seem to bother with them.

  6. Richard says:

    Hey Stuart, for some reason I cannot get the share buttons to work. I tried another browser also and had the same results.
    I happened on the last post you sent to me also.

    • NicheHacks says:

      Hey Richard, thanks for commenting and letting me know.

      The share buttons at the bottom of the post or the 'share to unlock content' ones throughout posts?

  7. Hi Richard.

    I am impressed with the detail you go into in analyzing a niche.

    Would you have any interest to analyze the romance for women niche? A friend of mine is doing that one but didn't do much research. The site is growing slowly with social traffic. Not much traffic but the bounce rate is 15% which is impressive. No sales yet. Monetized with "Text The Romance Back" and some similar.

    I clicked on the share on Twitter to download pdf and it sent to Twitter but nothing happened after that.

    Regards,
    Warner

  8. NicheHacks says:

    Hey Warner,

    Thanks for commenting. I hope to be releasing a lot more of these niche hack reports so I may research it in the future - thanks for the suggestion.

    Seems to be some problems with the social locker. Someone else mentioned similar too and I was having some issues with it yesterday.

    If you still haven't managed to get the PDF then drop me an email via the contact form and I will send it over.

    Thanks.

    P.S.

    Anyone else used the social locker and not been able to get access to the PDF file?

  9. Samuel says:

    That's a well though out report that you could easy converted into as a freebie for your email list building efforts.

    Me getting into this niche? I too busy for that I guess haha.

    I can see money here though if you are willing to put the work in.

    Just keep building very high-quality links to your website and you should see higher rankings that last.

    Thanks for the post!

    - Samuel

  10. Hey Stuart,

    Great article. Loved the way you did the research. This will help me in come up with a unique idea and building a new niche site (something that I've been putting off for quite some time now).

    I tried to download the article, however the social content locker doesnt seem to be working.

    • NicheHacks says:

      Hey Jake, glad you liked it and found it useful. Sorry about the social locker it's quite problematic it seems. Myself and others are having trouble with it too but it's not consistent. Works sometimes and not others.

      Talking with the creators of the plugin to resolve the problem as we speak. I will send you over the report via email now.

      Thanks for commenting.

  11. Erica says:

    Hi Stuart,

    Thank you for such a wonderful website and I have already learnt a lot. I am new to online business and am trying to build a web business soon. My girl friends suggested that I should choose from fashion jewelry, ladies fashion watches, baby apparel (in the 21 option list of yours), toys, knit clothing for women, etc. But I honestly have no clue if they can sell - I mean I know they can sell as I am a female consumer but when it comes to building a business I am not sure or rather I should say I don't know how to make decision based on data as what you just showed us in the above article. Can you please help conduct a brief analysis for one of them? I would really appreciate that.

    Erica

  12. Swati Dasgupta says:

    Hi,
    Your niche analysis is really amazing. One can learn a lot while doing research
    for a profitable niche. I want to launch one authority site in this niche also. Thanks a lot
    for the detailed information you provided here about the niche.

    • NicheHacks says:

      Hey Swati, thanks for commenting. Good to know someone is putting the information into action, what is your plan?

  13. Swati Dasgupta says:

    Hi Stuart,
    I have already selected one domain name related to this niche. I will buy it from Godaddy. I have already
    two themes from theme Junkie. Resizable theme and Newswire theme. Both have ad space in header and sidebar so that I can advertise some affiliate products. Both of them have optin forms also.
    Apart from that I am going through one of your post " 34 Ways To Increase Your Blogs Email Subscribers List". While reading I am writing down the main points covered in that article. I have lot of
    things to do. I have to create my free ebook Since English is not my native language I have to place order for articles ( at least 10 ). I prefer iWriter. Any suggestion ?

    • NicheHacks says:

      I've never used iWriter as far as I remember so can't comment on them, other options are ODesk, Elance and Warrior Forum WSO /services section.

      Make sure you pay for good quality articles - don't go for $5 articles as they will be low quality.

      The best thing you could do would be to pay people already involved in the niche to write for you - people who actually own backyard chickens and want to share their experience and don't know how to go about it or other bloggers in the niche.

  14. Larry says:

    Wow! Just got around to reading this post. Incredible work, Stuart. You've made it very easy to create a site in this niche. Looking forward to more!!

    L

  15. Charlie says:

    We started into this niche in Jan. 2014, and I've already implemented a lot of the tips you said. For instance, it's been very helpful for commenting on other blogs, and participate in forums. Great tips, Stuart! Thanks for sharing!

    • NicheHacks says:

      No problem Charlie, hope you found some use in the guide then. Hows the website going?

      • Charlie says:

        It has started slow, and we aren't getting much search traffic yet. We are mainly getting referrals through our other (non-chicken) sites as we are promoting it. I've been starting to comment on other forums, blog posts, and soliciting doing guest posts on other sites. Do you have any tips on how to rank in SEO quickly for this niche?

        BTW...you might want to supplement this post with recommendations on giveaways or promotions. That might help increase traffic too.

        • NicheHacks says:

          Thanks for replying Charlie. I'd recommend not worrying about unpredictable SEO traffic and certainly don't go spamming your own website with fake links to try and force a ranking, it'll bite you in the end.

          Just get your content / ads where your target audience already hang out through guest posting, blog commenting, networking, forum marketing, social media etc. Wherever they are you should have a strong presence there too.

          Network like crazy with others in the niche - tweet their stuff, email them, cooment on their blogs, send them cool stuff, do something good for them, link to them, ego bait them etc. They will eventually do it back if your content is solid

  16. Julius Kuns says:

    Would you be enthusiastic about exchanging hyperlinks?

    • NicheHacks says:

      Hey julius, I don't do link trades. If someone links to me because they like my content fantastic. If they happen to have great content too then sure I'll link back bt I don't exchange links for the sake of exchanging links. Sorry.

  17. Lisa says:

    Stuart,

    This is a cool niche =) How did you find this unusual niche? If you have some sort of premium product that cover this, I'd like to check it out ...

    • NicheHacks says:

      Hey Lisa, glad you like it. I honestly can't remember how I found this niche. But it's an interesting and very profitable one for sure.

  18. Stephanie says:

    Hi Stuart. Very informative post. I don't see many ads on Google for backyard chickens. Would you still consider it a good niche? Thanks for your blog posts.

      Look at all the products available on Amazon, Clickbank and other sites that sell well. Look at the amount of people searching for information on backyard chickens, urban chickens and chicken coop plans...definitely a profitable niche.

      Check the amount of ads on display for "chicken coops" 🙂

        Thank you for your reply, Stuart. I appreciate your information on this subject. 🙂 Finding a niche can be a daunting task but this seems like a good one, just from the research you provided here. Thanks again

        • NicheHacks says:

          It sure can be Stephanie but it's not as hard as you might think to find a niche. Remember you don't have to find something that no one else knows about...someone else ALWAYS knows. There are no new niches only niches that are new to YOU.

          And if it was a new niche there'd be no demand, few customers, no products on sale and no one would know about it....so how would we make money from it? 😀

  19. Thanks for the excellent research work done. It's amazing how you put this out for free time and time again. Have you considered offering a turnkey site with this info?. I will be the first to click your buy button.
    Meanwhile I tweeted the post and nothing . Kindly send the pdf to my mail. Thanks.

  20. Dude, just great this blog. It's been some time since I've been reading your articles, it strikes me like this now, it shows all the data of a niche and how to generate income from it. I believe you are the top 1 when it comes to niche marketing. I am a bed of Brazil. Hugs.

    • Hi Rodolfo, thanks for the kind words. Have you taken any action and dived into a niche yet?

      • Thanks for the answer. Yes I have already chosen my niche. I want to work with niche domains expired here in my country Brazil, but precisely helping businesses and businesses to know the power of domains expired. It took me about 3 weeks to investigate niches, I found several niches, but what aroused my passion was expired domains.

        Define steps to fulfill, one of which I defined is the Niche Specialization, I am researching and reading materials in this niche. But need to be a Domain Broker, here in Brazil is an unexplored niche, the cost per click on Google Adwords costs on average $ 6.00.

        But I have a problem, what is the best tool that professional domain brokers use to know the best domains metrics? Could you help me with a paid consulting?

        • NicheHacks says:

          As a newcomer to the online marketing and business world I wouldn't recommend you start an expired domain business.

          It's not an easy thing to do and you need to understand what makes a good expired domain and which is potentially dangerous (due to being spammed in the past) and it doesn't seem like you have that understanding yet/

          Also expired domains is something hardcore SEO's use, not regular businesses. They don't understand, want or need them. The demand just isn't there from regular businesses.

    Hi, I never thought about back yard chicken as a profitable niche, you made here great points to think about it.
    I live in the country (South-western Quebec) and I see a few of my neighbors have already some chickens in their back yards.
    I also have a friend who is currently working on raising some nice chickens as a breeding foot, and she is doing pretty good.

      Yep, it's a very lucrative niche as you can see from the data in the post. Worth considering if you know anything about it (or can partner with your neighbours).
